Pass By: Clinical Center Champalimaud, Av. Brasília, 1400-038 Lisboa, Portugal
Discover one of the most futuristic and remarkable buildings in Lisbon, facing right onto the Tagus. Between the nationalistic tradition of the Tower of Bethlehem and the symbol of seafaring toil that is the Dock of Rocks you'll find the Champalimaud Foundation. Also known as the Center of Research into the Unknown, the building is innovative and important as the biomedical research performed inside.
The building, designed by the architect Charles Correa, seeks to raise architecture to the level of sculpture, sculpture to the level of beauty and beauty to the level of therapy - in order to honor the center’s work.
Pass By: Centro Cultural de Belem - CCB, Praca Imperio, Belem 1449-003 Portugal
The Belem Cultural Center is one of modern Lisbon’s biggest icons.
Designed by Manuel Salgado and Vittorio Gregotti, it was built on a special site. Its modern architecture contrasts gently with some of the most iconic buildings of old Lisbon.
Stop At: MAAT - Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, Avenida Brasilia Central Tejo, Lisbon 1300-598 Portugal
MAAT is a museum where these three areas intertwine within a space of debate, discovery, critical thinking and international dialogue. It's an innovative project which establishes a connection between the new building, designed by Amanda Levete Architects' studio, and Central Tejo Power Station, one of Portugal's most prominent examples of industrial architecture from the first half of the 20th century, and one of the most visited museums in the country.
Located on the bank of the Tagus River in Lisbon's Belém district, the arching structure is designed as a continuation of the promenade. Its gently humped form is covered in 15,000 glazed tiles and is designed to allow visitors to walk over the roof.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Parque das Nacoes, Avenida Dom Joao II 13B, Lisbon 1990-998 Portugal
Right from initial planning, the Park of Nations constituted an opportunity to create a new city, one where architecture would take varied forms, with imagination the limit.
Examples of innovative design include the Portuguese Pavilion, Atlantic Pavilion, Knowledge Pavilion, Vasco da Gama Tower and Orient Station.
Get a birds' eye view on those builds with roundtrip in Parque das Nações cable car.
